I sharpened a knife too!  I actually did it a week ago but saved the photos till today

For those with sharp eyes, this is the same knife I sharpened last year (further up in this thread).  I chose too sharp an angle and it got dull too quickly.  This time I chose much better and was able to graft 51 trees without it dulling on me.  Yay!

The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
